romney became the fifth of the last six republican presidential nominees to fail to win the popular vote. last week he told a meeting of party conservatives that he fell short. >> as someone who just lost the last election i'm probably not in the best position to chart the course for the next one. >> ifill: romney's defeat has inspired much republican soul searching. today party chairman reince priebus unveiled his solution. >> we want to build our party. we want to do it with bold strokes to show we're up to the challenge and we're done with business as usual. >> ifill: the 98-page report detailed the party's failures in 2012. >> as it makes clear, there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. so there's no one solution. there's a long list of them. >> ifill: called the growth and opportunity project or g.o.p., the report is unsparingly self-critical, conceding among other things that the party is increasingly seen as the province
-ended the republican primary might even have produced a different nominee. as mitt romney struggled in the weeks leading up to the michigan primary, newt gingrich and rick santorum nearly agreed to form a joint unity ticket to consolidate conservative support and topple romney. we were close, former representative bob walker, a grich ally says. grich a gingrich and an toreum couldn't agree. in the end gingrich told me too hard to negotiate. so much going on there! where do i start? >> like i said this is one of the great untold stories. >> that is hilarious. >> how would that have worked? i'm curious. >> it didn't! >> i'm asking this question seriously because -- >> that is the point. >> because back in 2008, the reason why mike huckabee got beaten by john mccain is because fred thompson and john mccain struck this same deal and made the difference in south carolina. how is this going to work? >> first important to situate ourselves to february when this happened in the gop primary. romney was really struggling and clear he had a tough time winning his home state. there was emerging anybody but
going to happen? do you see seiu endorsing mitt romney? >> not mitt romney. he's history. but the fact of the matter is, if the republican party wants to broaden itself out, going forward, they will choose canned -- candidates and issues that attract labor -- >> we have the very best! we have the very best issues about labor, we want to lower the taxes on working people and more liberty for working people. we want to protect america's borders and from terrorism for working people -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that has nothing to do with what we are talking about. >> we are not talking about the borders. you are conflating a burch of stuff that has nothing to do with unions itch the idea that working people is union membership is a fraud. working people need job creation. and conservative approximatelies will bring t. liberal policies will crush it -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that's proven to be untrue. >> shannon: gentlemen. we talked about the numbers. neap 1953, it is peak for union membership here. 26% of the labor force. now it's 11.3. if the unions are vital and so powerful, why t
forward-looking agenda for america. he made a mitt romney with a wife that's equestrian -- let's not kid ourself. we have two robust parties. each have their own problems. we're likely to see a competitive political environment for decades to come. as for rand paul, good comment. republicans need to help resolve the issue of immigration reform, in order to get this issue behind us. i think it's interesting. mitt romney got 27% of the latino vote. in the battleground states with exit polling he got 32%. in the battleground of battlegrounds, ohio, he got 42% of latino votes. maybe that's a small sampling. nonetheless, the fact of the matter is, the more he was able to make these arguments about the economy and deficit and debt and the affordable care act -- >> but doesn't the republican party have to pass immigration reform, seem to passing it to avoid having the appearance that they're not welcoming? >> the republicans have to play a role, absolutely. my former white house deputy has taken the leadership of the effort in california to help recruit and elect hispanic republicans at the loc
not understand what people think we have such a contentious relationship. on the rear of a car, a mitt romney bumper sticker. guest: it is no secret that he had a tense relationship with president obama. even though they will deny it, it was clear that he was close to mitt romney and so said that he supported mitt romney. he definitely did not do much to support obama in this re- election cycle. however these three short days in the middle east have done a lot to bridge these gaps. we saw benjamin netanyahu willing to be persuaded by president obama. i think we saw the israeli public, even though it may have started out with a deep mistrust towards obama, it ended this week with a lot of affection. maybe it did manage to bridge some of these gaps. ,ost: after a two state evening he arrived on wednesday, meeting with the israeli prime minister. thursday he traveled to the west bank and met with the palestinian authority president. friday, meeting with the king of playing tourist yesterday and returning to washington at 8:00 last evening. the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, asked ab
amendments that i supportd that would keep marriage for a man and woman outran mitt romney in the four libertarians ra libern average of 4 points. and then. >> chris: i have to go to nicolle. how important do you think same-sex marriage is as a gateway issue for republicans maintaining credibility with new younger voters? >> i think what is most important is that the debate remains civilized and that it remains intellectual and remains the debate about the role of marriage in our life and we have to have room in our party for both mr. bauer and me. >> chris: on that note of unusual agreement, thank you both. thanks for talking with us and we will hear what the justices have to say when they consider these two cases this week. thank you both for coming in. >> thank you. >> chris: up next we will continue the discussion with the sunday group. will the supreme court make a sweeping decision or decide these cases on narrow grounds? >>> my opinion is born out of my childhood and my faith and my beliefs that marriage is between one man and one woman. >> here is what i think about it. doma is
't like. prime minister netanyahu right of center, supported romney in the last presidential election, has at times stopped at president obama, my language, doesn't get it. both of these guys just won elections. they are in the words of a top american official the other day, stuck with each other. and it's very crystal clear today, both of them have decided to try to turn a new page. are they going to be best friends, i think not. but are they going to be better friends? today it appeared they're going to at least try at that. and that makes a difference. when you're dealing with the iran nuclear crisis, the syria civil crisis, the question of whether you can get the palestinians and the israelis back on the table. if they like each other a bit more, it helps when things get difficult. and that's a difficult list. >> people assume that iran may be overshadowing this trip, in a sense, syria has overtaken even iran because of the suggestion that chemical weapons have been used, both sides trying to blame the other side. what do we really know about what may have happened here? >> reporter: n
to their communities. >> now, the republican party -- mitt romney talked about during the campaign briefly, he talked about nuclear energy and the need. but republicans in general, the energy issue has tended to be sort of stereotype as climate change. do republicans need to, as we are talking about sort of the need for republican renaissance, rebirth, call it what you will, do republicans need to think more broadly about energy and how it fits into this rebranding of the party? and if so, are there one, two or three things that the party should absolutely -- i assume nuclear is part of this, that the party absolutely should embrace to say, look, we're not just the guys that are antiwhat the democrats are proposing on energy and everything else. >> they need to think more broad low on just about everything, i think, but certainly on energy. one of those things is to say, look, we want clean air. we want a good quality of life for people. so that means we need to look at clean energy. cleaner energy means less air pollutants which means healthier people. if you can call something that's contagious an
and a woman, out ran mitt romney in those four liberal states by an average of 5 points. >> chris: no, we're out of time and i have to go to nicole and i want to ask one final question. how important -- and again i don't think the politics of this should be the determinative factor, and hopefully won't be in the supreme court. how important do you think same sex marriage is as a gateway issue for republicans maintaining credibility with new younger voters? >> i think what is most important is that the debate remains civilized and remain intellectual and remain a debate about the role of marriage in our lives and we have to have room in ourpat party for both mr. bauer and me. >> chris: unusual agreement, thank you both and thanks for talking with us and we'll hear what the justices have to say when they consider these two cases this week. thanks for coming in. >> thank you. >> chris: up next, we'll continue this discussion with our sunday group. will the supreme court make a sweeping decision or decide these cases on narrow grounds? ♪ impact wool exports from new zealand, textile product
of center, prime minister netanyahu right of center, no question netanyahu favored romney in the presidential election. i talked to a top u.s. official the other day who put it this way, he said "they're stuck with each other." both of these guys just won elections. the president starting his second term. prime minister netanyahu put together his coalition government. iran is a huge policy issue, trying to restart the peace process is a huge issue, if they have a better personal relationship they can get things done. you saw first thing this morning the prime minister tries to crack a joke, he says if you can ditch your security detail, i have a fake mustache and we'll go out and have a few drinks in the bar. it's clear they're trying to at least for the public con sujs to show they're going to work together better on the personal side. >> good to see you, john king there, traveling with the president. >>> the israeli embassy released a video for president obama's trip. we want everybody to take a look at this. ♪ thank you for being a friend ♪ traveled down the road an
shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of the washington. there is no precedent for something coming off a national ticket and going right back into congress wi
and talking about a common sense caucus. and we can talk about divisions and point my finger and mitt romney said 47% of the american people. >> i rejected by the way. >> i'm sure you did and so did the american people. >> megyn: that came late. the outreach to the republicans came late in the term, but he's speaking about something more when he's talking about stoking the divisions. but speak to mark's point about undermining the financial stability and his point about the stock market a rebounding and positive economic indicators. if husband goal is to destroy the country, mark-- >> i don't know if mark wants to make that claim today when he sees the stock market react to what's happening in cyprus, and all of a sudden, the stock market and wall street is indicative of prosperous growth on main street, i would definitely take -- we have the highest labor force-- the lowest, rather, labor force participation since the 1980's, mark, you know that. the jobless rate is decreasing because people are leaving the work force. economic growth the rising tide that lifts all boats in our country .1%
that were won by mitt romney. so you have them very cautious about upsetting gun owners and upsetting powerful forces, forces with dollars to spend on campaigns like the nra. gun hobbyists who of course vote and turn out in big numbers behind this issue. this is an issue that will bring out voters to the polls. this is why you had not seen any motion on gun control before newtown. the president despite the concern of people who are gun enthusiasts had not taken any action. feinstein, senator feinstein had not taken any action even though the assault weapons ban had expired just about 10 years earlier. so you see the change. jenna: let's a little bit about that because dianne feinstein says she is disappointed in this. she said if you think congress would listen and clearly listened to the nra. a lot of fingers point to the nra as the reason behind the fact this part of the legislation was dropped. however we had this author on our program, juan, and can you bring up juan, i like to see him when i'm talking to him as well. thank you, i'm sorry. we have fancy graphics just talking to yo
to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign in the senate races in the success of the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: we are taking your calls with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. our farmland or open democrats (202)585-3880 and republicans (202)585-3881. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know that they are getting and obama never talks about the trillion dollars in tax increases starting this year for
. he was a fan of mitt romney. >> these political moments are going to happen. the u.s. under president obama has a lot to rebuild in terms of credibility with the israeli people. the president is trying to divide jerusalem, roll israel back to the 1967 borders which are indefensible and pressure israel not to launch a preemptive military strike against iran, all three of which are issues israelis take very personally because it is in their national security interests. but for the president to actually be on the ground in israel is always a historic moment. it is important with this president and prime minister. and i don't want to be a cynic. i'm a critic of the president's policies on iran but i don't want to be a cynic. bill: one more point here. we mentioned the green light. you suggest if the green light has not been given, why not? >> yeah. well, the press conference yesterday was interesting. it will take some time to sift this thing out but the president's repeatedly stated that israel has the right of self-defense and the united states should be helping israel be able to defend
community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think anything is going to come of this? will there be a peace process any time soon? >> again, the situation is decidedly unripe given the divisions of the palestinians, the israeli government is not a government that was elected to make peace. this was a government that was elected to deal with the special privileges of the orthodox within israeli society. you got the turbulence in egypt. you will have turbule
the space is much as mitt romney got to the right of rick perry back in the primary and i think this seemed to me a real indicator, tipping point moment whether paul would seize that opportunity and the fact he made the calculation he did seems to me to cement what i thought at first was possibly a conventional wisdom that cemented too quickly which is you'll see the gop establishment the conservative elite keep sort of coalition together on immigration reform. >> right. it's particularly interesting given that it was an opportunity to get to the right of marco rubio who is definitely somebody who will be completing for similar voters if they both run for the nomination in 2016. you do have to remember, those that rand paul is somewhat philosophically libertarian. they believe in more expansion civilian immigration policy. it does show you the political restrictionist position isn't as strong. >> were you surprised? >> i was mildly surprised. i thought he would have couched it in terms where he was more clearly to the right of rubio. there's some nuances of it where the border security metr
